Event Name

EMBO practical course on Correlative Light Electron Microscopy

Start Date 10th Jul 2016
End Date 15th Jul 2016

This EMBO Practical Course aims to train young scientists in the available techniques in the Correlative Light Electron Microscopy field of life science.

Students will be given a theoretical overview of available techniques and importantly the rationale why a particular method is applied to a specific scientific question will be discussed. Following the theoretical part students will get hands on experience of most of the techniques and they will be provided with practical tips and tricks by the experienced teaching staff.

This course aims at having a strong interaction / discussion between the students and the lecturers, where students are encouraged to challenge the techniques, propose alternatives, and discuss how CLEM can be applied to their own specific research questions. To this end a lot of the work will be performed in small groups with a high staff to student ratio (almost 1:1).
